Cretin Atheist,

"VICARIVS FILII DEI" (Vicar of the Son Of God) is one of the titles of the Pope and is equal to "VICARIVS CHRISTI" (Vicar of Christ)!!! Christ is the Son of God:

"Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son Of God, God abides in Him, and he in God." (l John 4:15, NKJV)

Apostle John testified that Christ is the Son of God, and therefore, what is stolen by the popes is the title of Christ!!!

Improve your low I.Q. for of all athiests, you have the lowest!!!

Lol,

Yes, of course as exemplified by this "VICARIVS FILII DEI":

Pope Stephen VI (896 to 897)
Arguably the most unbalanced of this lists' unscrupulous popes, Stephen VI set out to get revenge on his predecessor, Pope Formosus, who he felt had wronged him in spite of the fact that his nemesis was now dead.
Stephen arranged a court date and ordered Formosus' nine-month-old corpse to be exhumed, dressed in sacred papal robes and propped up on a throne to be tried for his crimes. With a deacon answering on behalf of the deceased, Stephen raged and raved accusations of Formosus having had unfairly receiving the pope title at Formosus' skeleton.
The cadaver lost the trial, and Stephen declared Formosus' rule as pope void. He then chopped off the three fingers used to give blessings and ordered the body to be stripped of its robes and dumped into a cemetery for foreigners. Soon after, an earthquake struck Rome, destroying the papal basilica. The corpse was dug up once again and flung into the Tiber Rover, but a few compassionate people fished it out and gave Formosus a proper burial, according to "A History of the Church in the Middle Ages" (Psychology Press, 2002).
However, the macabre trial came back to haunt Stephen, as the earthquake's damage was taken as a sign from God. Rioting mobs of Formosus' supporters arrested Stephen and locked him in a dungeon, where he was later found strangled to death, according to "A History of the Church."

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

The Pope should now repent for arrogating unto himself the tittle of "Holy Father"!!! He is doing a very serious offense by exalting Himself as God who is the only true Holy Father!!! In II Thessalonians 2:3-4, this is what can be read:
"Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." [NKJV]
The deceiver would carry out the falling away or the apostasy. He would show himself that he is God. Which teaching has the man of sin broken with the intention of making himself equal with God? In Matthew 23:9 is our Lord Jesus Christ's pronouncement:
"Do not call anyone on earth your father; for one is your Father, He who is heaven." [Ibid.]
It is forebidden that anyone on earth be called by the Fatherhood of God who is in heaven. There is only one Father who is in heaven, and it is not proper to call anyone on earth by that Fatherhood. What kind of Father is God according to the Apostles? In Hebrews 12:9, this is what can be read:
"In the case of our human fathers, they punished us and we respected them. How much more, then, should we submit to our spiritual Father and live!" (TEV)
There are two kinds of fathers: one is the human father, the other is the spiritual Father. Who are the men who have themselves called spiritual Fathers?
In the Catholic book entitled, The Faith of Our Fathers, which was written by James Cardinal Gibbons, on page 113, this is what can be read:
"The popes were not only devoted spiritual Fathers, but firm and valiant civil Governors."
Christ forbids any man having himself called father like God is Father.

Lol,

I don't doubt it because this "VICARIVS FILII DEI" was himself amused together with his woman when young and naked Roman Catholic prostitutes were chasing chestnuts:

"On October 30, 1501, Burchard described a dinner in the apartment of Caesar in the Vatican at which fifty naked Roman harlots chased chestnuts that were scattered over the floor, while Pope Alexander (VI) and Lucrezia looked on with amusement."

Reference:(Paul Williams, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Catholic Church But Were Afraid to Ask For Fear of Excommunication. New York: Doubleday, 1989, p.19)

All Roman catholics must improve their low I.Q.!!!

Sherlayne,

Thanks for the post!!! It is not actually unusual!!! For when they fabricated the Holy Trinity, they also preached the same without understanding:

"The Trinity is a wonderful mystery. No one understands it. The most learned theologian, the holiest Pope, the greatest saint, all are mystified by it as a child of seven."

Reference:[Martin J. Scott, S.J., God and Myself, Nhil Obstat: Arthurus J. Scanlan, S.T.D., Imprimatur: Joannes Cardinalis Farley (P.J. Kenedy and Sons, 1917), pp. 118-119.]

Thanks so much :) As usual, I'm up in the middle of the night. Maybe that's why I have a hard time believing in some things - I try to understand things that people far more educated than I (and smarter!) can't mentally digest either. I may expect too much of myself. Your message really made me stop and think. There are so many mysteries that we humans simply cannot understand and it seems I torture myself trying to figure out things we simply cannot know in this life. God, I know, can accomplish anything and someday we'll all understand. I'm pretty sure that for now I should just accept things as they are, and just be satisfied that some day we'll ALL have the privilege to know.

Thanks for your eye-opening post. My husband and I are doing so-so. The main thing is my son, his wife and baby boy are doing great!! I hope all is well with you and yours :)

Sherlayne,

There are things which we cannot fathom about God, but, things which He wants us to know are already revealed in the holy Writ!!! The reason why there are things which we cannot fathom is because these are no longer needed in our quest for salvation or eternal life!!! For if we know all the secrets of God and of things, then, we are also Gods ourselves!!! But we can never be All-knowing like the true God!!!

And that will never happen because the true God already declared that He knows no other God besides Himself:

"Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one." (Is. 44:8)

The fabrications therefore of two more Gods in the Councils of Nicaea (Christ) and Constantinople (Holy Spirit) and producing the spurious doctrine of the Holy Trinity were thus obfuscations of the truth!!! And this was noticed right away by Arius who said:

"... if God the Father and the Son were both divine, then there were two gods, which meant that Christianity was not a monotheistic religion".

Reference: Magoffin. Ralph V.D and Frederick Duncalf. Ancient and Medieval History: The rise of classical culture and the development of medieval civilization, p. 394. Silver Burdett Company, 1939.

True Christianity is a monotheistic religion and the fabrications of two more Gods later were violations of true biblical and Christian tenets!!!

Thank you again for your post!!! Greetings to your family including your son's family!!! My problem is routine homesickness!!! May you impart also your curiousity to those close to you!!!

I've always read your posts as I think you are wonderfully intelligent and sensible. I love people I can learn from.

And you're right - it's impossible for us to be all-knowing. That's God's territory only.

Is curiosity a good thing? It seems the more answers I get, the more questions I have. Keep up your fascinating posts, please. I enjoy them immensely. And thanks for asking about my family - you are so thoughtful! Love & hugs, Sherlayne
